Daunte Culpepper Reportedly Working Out With 49ers

It looks like Jim Harbaugh saw enough from the first preseason performance by the San Francisco 49ers to reconsider his commitment to Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick as his one-two combo at quarterback. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports via a league source that NFL veteran Daunte Culpepper is going to or is currently working out with the Niners.

Culpepper's best days are over a half-decade ago. His heyday was with the Minnesota Vikings, when he teamed up with Randy Moss to provide one of the most devastating QB-WR combos in NFL history. But he struggled in his final season and then suffered a serious knee injury that started his decline out of the league. He hovered in stints with the Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions before spending the last season in the UFL.

But the Niners definitely could use a hand. Smith is still an unrestricted free agent and Kaepernick is unrestricted in his vigorous youth. Culpepper at least provides a veteran presence, although his touchdown to interception ratio currently hovers under one.

49ers Injury Report: Reggie Smith Tears Meniscus, Out For Weeks

Turns out safety Reggie Smith wasn't kidding when he gave that tweet suggesting injury. The good news is it won't be serious enough to keep him out for an extended period of time. The bad news is that he could be out for the majority of training camp, the preseason, maybe even the first week or two of the regular season, so the defensive back Ferris wheel continues to circulate for the Niners.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee found out through a source that Smith tore a meniscus in one of his knees, will be out a couple of weeks, but the injury won't be long-term. It does explain why the 49ers were quick to re-sign Dashon Goldson on a one-year deal when it looked like he was ready to leave town. Now it looks like the Niners will have actually quite a bit of depth in the secondary when everyone is back to full health.
